The magazine's fantastic. Full to the brim with really talented illustrators showing their wares. It's especially exciting with this issue as it's twice the size than normal, has a free letterpress print by Nick Deakin/Blush Publishing and the illustrators have brought a ton of unusual interpretations of the theme into it.
I'm sure you're all aware that I enjoy drawing ladies, and these two in particular are some of my favourites. They just look so damn cool (well, and proud, tough, patriotic and stylish in their work uniforms!). Don't you just want to be friends with them?! I tried to keep the costuming as close to the actual uniforms as possible, it was a nice change for me to be able to work from some solid historical reference.
Here's a few of my favourites from the issue by some very talented folks ( TL - BR: Katherine Tromans, James Shedden, Ed J Brown, James Burlinson) -

Definitely go and have a lunchtime read about the Lumberjills too, it's really interesting.
Speak soon, Emmeline.
